The Digital Compression Screw (D.C.S.) is a solid, stainless steel screw specifically designed to address digital fusions. The 1.5mm and 1.8mm diameters range from 20mm to 55mm in length, allowing for fusion of the DIPJ, PIPJ, or both.
- The lag design and over-drilling technique allow for compression across the fusion site.
- The threads purchase into cortical bone, improving stability and reducing the chance of rotation or residual flexion.
- No exposed wires allow patients to wear a normal, stiff-soled postoperative shoe.
- Once fusion has been achieved, the technique allows for easy in-office screw removal.
